Exodus 20:1-6, “And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”
Kindly, Catholics do indeed worship Mary and idols...
Clearly, Catholics do worship Mary!
Billions of lost people today are blinded by false religion. Catholics are in denial, denying that they worship idols while on their knees sinfully bowing to them.
In a wicked attempt to justify worshipping idols, Roman Catholics have even gone as far as to remove the second commandment of God not to worship graven images.
A person would have to choose to remain wilfully ignorant to continue in the Catholic religion, in view of the disturbing truths I have just shown you. The Devil is a beautiful liar and has deceived over one billion Catholics.
Nowhere does the inspired Word of God teach for Christians to recognize Mary, nor any other human being, except the God-man Jesus (1st Timothy 2:5). Mary was born with a sinful nature, just like you and me. Mary sinned, just like you and me. Mary died because the wages of sin is death, just like you and I will die. Mary was not assumed into Heaven, which the Catholic church made official dogma in 1950 (aka, the Assumption of Mary heresy).
Catholics have deified Mary, claiming she never sinned and was taken into Heaven by God. That is all demonic lies. Mary was no different than any other sinful human being, except that the Holy Spirit of God worked the miracle of a virgin birth in her body, to bring the only begotten Son of God into the world.
